WCSHC Purpose
WCSHC experienced a reincarnation in 1997 with Frank Taylor, as president and Gus Townes mentor. WCSHC’s membership had dwindled to four members; however, Omerio & Dee Dotson, Mary Hannah and Bobby Hardin’s founding members’ commitment to rejuvenate WCSHC’s mission of assisting small farmers and landowners came to fruition. WCSHC’s membership adopted a mantra of “Helping Saving Rural America” to empower members with inspiration and motivation to become better stewards of their natural resources. Members focused their energies on accessing services from USDA and non-profit organizations to stimulate growth in farm incomes and strengthen family relationships. Mary Hannah founding members stated, “We needed an innovated strategy of attracting energetic members and incite thought provoking ideals to broaden WCSHC’s community image. We formulated a four-point plan of action…finance, health, housing, and youth. This plan of action-ignited discourse among some members because they only wanted to focus on agriculture related issues; and not embraces the holistic approach of surviving in rural America. However, the leadership galvanized and steamed forward on housing, health, finance, and developed a youth component to personify WCSHC’s efforts of progressing in a new direction. Today, “WCSHC’s membership consists of 56 vibrant members from three surrounding counties”. We collaborate with USDA agency & non-profit organizations and deliver relevant information in a timely manner to generate revenue for small farmers. We believe Winston County Self Help Cooperative and Youth Group will exist into perpetuity with its mission of helping save rural America”.
